Questions & Answers

Can this be converted to propane gas instead of liquid propane?

Asked by: Geff
Propane gas is the vapor from liquid propane. This water heater, like a gas grill, works off the vapor from your LP tank. So to answer your question, no "conversion" is necessary for this water heater to run on "propane gas".

When measuring height, are you measuring top of tank, where water lines atratch, or top of vent cap? 60.25?

Asked by: Wynotme307
When measuring for 60.25in. You are measuring from the bottom to the top of the tank, (where the water lines attach).

Customer Reviews

Performance Plus 40 Gal. Tall 9 Year 36,000 BTU Liquid Propane Tank Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1478.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad post purchase service Do your research before buying Rheem. Simply google Rheem and warranty issues and you’ll see the truth. Great if they work but if you run into issues you can’t fix yourself it’s going to be a uphill battle. The consumer affairs site is loaded with bad reviews. In my case I’m still under full warranty within 2 years and they won’t send a tech out because they don’t have any in my area. I live in a pretty suburban area not far from major cities but they don’t have techs? They offered to cover $125 on a repair but I can’t even get a plumber/tech out to look it over for a price anywhere close to that and that’s just the first hour. So they try to avoid sending techs out and they lowball you on what they’ll cover for repairs. You’ll notice none of my complaints are about the unit itself. Sometimes you just get unlucky with a bad unit but it’s how this company handles those situations that really should give you a pause on purchasing their products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding hot water heater. Why did I wait so long... Outstanding hot water heater. Why did I wait so long to replace my aging unit.
Date published: 2019-03-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality products? My last hot water heater lasted for 12 years. I worked for 42 years in the engineering & construction industry and installed the unit myself. I was disappointed to see that the control was Honeywell china. Cheap, cheap. I have personally purchased all kinds of instrumentation for refinery & chemical plants & there are much better. We will see. Since my unit is in our upstairs attic, I had to install a boat trailer crank , with steel cable & pulley above the opening which allowed me to hoist the 135 lb heater straight up in the vertical and into the pan. You should have designed two lifting ears on the sides Or maybe the hot & cold pipe suitable for lifting, however, my sling under the bottom And rope wrappings around the entire tank worked very well. My wife was operating the winch & I was watching from beneath. Oh yea, I designed and welded A structural clip to hold the pulley, worked very well. Left every thing in place for the next time. (68 yr. Old, & retired) should have filmed it!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flammable vapor lockout issues This water heater is pretty efficient and seems to work well except I've had a lot of cold showers due to the flammable vapor sensor lockout. I know this is a safety feature that is meant to protect people, but it seems over-sensitive and Rheem does not publish the reset procedure to homeowners. As a result my contractor replaced the whole unit once, and I have replaced the FV sensor once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slightly better than expected I am not one to write reviews, with all the companies out there that write them for the manufactures. I had to in this case since I have had a flawlessly perfect experience with the Performance Plus water heater. The installation/replacement was as simple as any waster heater and the start up was so much simpler than the old 'stick a long match in the hole and pray' models. I have been using it for about one year now and never had a lack of hot water even with housefulls of guests taking showers/baths. It is quite quite and the only indication I get is from the blinking LED indicting that it is testing the system. Where it has slightly exceeded my expectations is in the cost of operations. My gas bill in the summer months has been lower than what the Energy Star label would indicate it should be. So if you want a water heater that preforms as advertised and quietly does it job this is the unit.,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy! I just recently had to replace my Bradford & White 50 gallon water heater after only 6 years of service for a family of 4. Died exactly one month after it's warranty expired. So, Off to Home Depot to pick up a new one and get it installed quickly. I am handy, not a tradesman to say the least but handy. So, I brought the new unit home, unpacked it and found it to be well built and as far as water heaters go it was attractive. Nice clean lines and easy to read and understand instructions made this a 25 minute install and we were up and running with a full tank of hot water in just over two hours. I have paid licensed plumbers to install water heaters for me before, but honestly if you have "any" skills you will be able to remove the old unit and install a new unit in less than an hour! I went through the registration process with Rheem and again was pleased. This too was a smooth easy process. I hope to never have to follow this review up with my review of Rheem's customer service as I know this unit will work great for years to come. Great Product! Highly recommended!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pilot/Ignition Switch Goes Out Periodically I got this heater 12 months ago and have had AT LEAST 10 occurrences where the pilot light has inexplicably gone out and I have had to go up in the attic and re-ignite it with the switch. We only find out when we turn on the water (shower, kitchen sink, etc) and it's totally cold. So frustrating! This started happening about two months after we got it and is totally unpredictable. Sometimes we'll go a week or two with it being fine or sometimes several months. There are no environmental factors that seem to be involved and the heater set-up was checked and passed by a city inspector at installation. Weird. The heater itself works fine -- as long as the pilot light and switch don't go out.
